Mauro Pelaschier victorious at 12 m World Championship in Newport R.I.
Porto Cervo, 16 July 2019. Patrizio Bertelli’s 12 metre Nyala, helmed by Mauro Pelaschier, has won the 12 Metre World Championship in Newport in the Vintage division.
YCCS Member and One Ocean Foundation Ambassador Pelaschier – who previously raced in Newport on Azzurra in 1983 – had already clinched victory before the end of the event thanks to a run of victories totalling eight wins out of the nine races held.
Pelaschier’s adventure at the helm of Nyala continues this week as the boat is taking part in the NYYC 175th Anniversary Regatta and currently sits at the top of the provisional classification of the 12 Metre Vintage Class.
Member Tony Langley is also taking part in the event at the twinned NYYC. On board his TP52 Gladiator and flying the YCCS colours, Langley is currently in second place in the IRC division.
The YCCS congratulates our members and wishes them fair winds!
